      Benefits of the Mechanical toolset

      View of the cover of “The Benefits of Using the Mechanical toolset in AutoCAD” study

      In this study, the Mechanical toolset boosted productivity by up to 55%,* bringing dramatic time savings to common AutoCAD® mechanical design tasks.

      *As with all performance tests, results may vary based on machine, operating system, filters, and even source material.

      * Productivity data based on a series of studies commissioned by Autodesk to an outside consultant. The seven toolset studies compared basic AutoCAD to the specialized toolsets within AutoCAD when performing tasks commonly done by experienced AutoCAD users. As with all performance tests, results may vary based on machine, operating system, filters, and even source material. While every effort has been made to make the tests as fair and objective as possible, your results may differ. Product information and specifications are subject to change without notice. Autodesk provides this information “as is”, without warranty of any kind, either express or implied.
